The land that Freedom Run Winery sits upon, the Niagara Escarpment, is steeped in history. It is said that enslaved families in the 1800s ran under cover of night up and over the Escarpment to reach the Niagara River, and once across, to freedom in Canada. It is believed that the Stone House, circa 1826, was used as a shelter for escaped families seeking repose on their journey.
After visiting Freedom Run Winery, spend the day exploring the history of the Underground Railway at the nearby Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center, with a visit to one of the natural wonders of the world, Niagara Falls. End the day with dinner in the quaint town of Lewistown, NY, after a visit to the Freedom Crossing Monument, which honors Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.
The land at Freedom Run Winery offers a chance to congregate, contemplate, and commune with nature. We have many opportunities for your group to join us for a full day of wellness activities, dinner & brunch, arts & crafts, live music, and more.
